GPM GROUND VALIDATION TOTAL PRECIPITATION SENSOR (HOTPLATE) GCPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation Total Precipitation Sensor (HotPlate) GCPEx dataset provides a measure of the liquid precipitation rate and accumulation for snow. Additional data includes measurements of temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, pressure, and solar and infrared radiation flux. These data were gathered during the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) at the CARE and SkyDive sites in Ontario, Canada during November 7, 2011 - February 21, 2012. These data sets were collected to aid in the achievement of the over arching goal of GCPEx which is to characterize the ability of multi-frequency active and passive microwave sensors to detect and estimate falling snow.
